The all-new 2020 RAM 3500 HD is about the arrive with the additional refreshments. The pickup truck is already one of the best heavy-duty models. It offers modern exterior and the interior is among the best-in-class. Moreover, the performance is great thanks to the powerful Hemi engine and the proven diesel powertrain.
The 2020 model will get a much better interior. According to the latest spy shots, the whole heavy-duty lineup will be based on the Ram 1500 model. That is a good thing as the 1500 pickup already offers astonishing interior design. The exterior will get some smaller upgrades in terms of better styling and aerodynamics.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Redesign
The exterior shouldn’t get any significant changes. However, RAM is still quiet about the possible updates from the outside. The 2020 RAM 3500 HD should get some styling upgrades that are the same as on the 1500 pickup truck. That means some of the exterior features will be borrowed from the light duty model.
The heavy-duty pickup was spotted on a test drive, wearing heavy camouflage. The front end clearly gained new headlights and the front grille. The grille will probably get the iconic “RAM” lettering as always. Unlike some other automakers such as Chevrolet, RAM is willing to deliver the same styling to the light and heavy-duty models.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Interior is Based on the Ram 1500 Model
The good news is that the interior of the 2020 RAM 3500 HD will be almost identical to the interior of the current RAM 1500 pickup. The 1500 model offers very stylish interior with plenty of modern features. That means we can expect the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen and the same center stack.
The 12-inch display should be optional on the base model and standard on the higher trim levels. Interestingly, the truck comes without rotary shift dial as it offers a steering column-mounted shift lever that is more traditional. On the other hand, the dashboard will stay intact. RAM will look to introduce more driver assistance and safety aids than before.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Engine Output
The upcoming RAM 3500 HD will use the same engine as the rest of the heavy-duty lineup. Even the light-duty pickup trucks are using the same 6.4-liter Hemi V8 powertrain. It delivers 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. The 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine should replace the existing 5.7-liter V8.
A larger engine will generate more power, logically, up to 385 horses and 930 lb-ft of torque. If you are planning to use the 3500 HD model for work, the diesel engine is more than recommendable.
The newest model can tow up to 30,000 pounds which is quite impressive. The hybrid drivetrain is very unlikely for 2020 but we can expect from RAM to deliver this type of engine model for. From some rumors, Hybrid one will get better-towing numbers.
2020 Ram 3500 HD Price and Release Date
The arriving pickup truck will retain the existing price, which means around $33,000. The new RAM 3500 HD pickup will arrive in the second half of 2019 and will rival the competitors from the General Motors and Ford.
